Last month the mother of all designer showrooms in Singapore opened with a revamped look, a new location (and a S$50 million design) to much applause from the SE Asian design community. Space
, located on Bencoolen Street, is a 40,000 square foot design showroom comprised of three different buildings, joined together by a beautiful glass block building. In the States we are used to trade show buildings and massive design showrooms but in Singapore, and neighboring countries, this type of shopping experience doesn't quite exist. In a city with non-stop condominium construction and lots of disposable income, this showroom is much appreciated by the design community.
With over 20 well-known brands like Moooi, Carl Hansen and Son, Vitra and Kartell, Space has created a destination shopping experience. This is not your typical mall shop: relaxing patios and air-conditioned open spaces are inviting and inspiring.
If you are in Singapore you can find their location and hours of operation on the Space website.
